Kiesselbach, T.A. (1916) Transpiration as a factor in crop production (Research bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 6)
The object of experiments reported in this bulletin has been to determine principles according to which water is used by crops. In many agricultural districts, water is frequently a seriously limiting factor in crop production. It has been thought that some means might be devised through a correct understanding of the principles involved, whereby economy in the use of water in farm practice could be increased. In this effort there are two chief points of attack, namely, (1) adjusting the external factors to the needs of the plant, and (2) selecting plants adapted to the conditions.
